Dozens of characters make an appearance in this fascinating one-man-show by the fearless and celebrated French choreographer Maguy Marin. Using simple props, actor David Mambouch skilfully creates a moving gallery of portraits in this intriguing, austere performance. His own identity is concealed behind a succession of images of faces – some are familiar, others are not. Adopting and shedding personas as often as his costumes, he switches from one identity to another, expertly adjusting his gestures and posture to each. Male and female, old and young, celebrities and strangers: his precisely timed movements describe his characters without uttering a single word.
Singspiele is a show about listening, about hearing the stories held behind mute faces and acknowledging our primal need to be recognised.
“The actor David Mambouch … firmly holds the reins of this performance, surrendering his body like modeling clay to all the ages and body types whose faces he impersonates.” Le Monde
“This solo, driven by the excellent David Mambouch, is the most understated and concentrated piece Marin has created in a long time.” Artistik Rezo

Project Arts Centre is pleased to announce an open call for a series of 3 artist commissions. Future Forecast is a series of events and artistic interventions forming part of a speculative voyage towards the future. Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it.

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More
